I dont have any pictures on my desk top of one w/o the core support on but I would advise going to www.Audizine.com if you want to find good info about 2.7T cars. You wont find much in the way of 2.7T fan fare on here.
I just bought one in the same condition as yours as it suffered a timing belt failure. Here are a few shots of my engine bay.
This is how it arrived.
Now with new new engine in.
And with the engine having turbo surgery after the first installation revealed a coolant leak.
